Has anyone replaced the door glass on a Harman Mark III stove? How hard is it to do?
Thanks for your help.

Easy peazy. Hardest parts are getting the bolts out on the inside of the door frame without breaking them off and paying for the glass. Might try some heat on the bolts first.

Thanks for the reply. My wife was cleaning around the stove today and the sweeper handle hit the glass and broke the lower corner out. I called my dealer, he has the glass and gasket in stock. They are very proud of their parts, the glass is $79.95 not sure about the gasket. Oh well I need it soooo. I will let the fire go out and get the glass and replace it tomorrow.

I have a Mark I but I’m pretty sure the glass is removed the same way. Before you do anything soak the bolts with a product designed to penetrate the corrosion around the bolt. Ordinary WD 40 won’t work. I don’t remember the name of the brand I used but it’s on the same shelf as the WD 40 (it was made by the same company). Since one of my bolts broke off anyway, I’d recommend you pick up a bolt extractor kit at the same time you get the penetrating oil. It’s only a couple of bucks and can be returned easy enough if you don’t need it. I also had to retap the hole to clean out the threads so pick up one of those bits, too, while you’re there. Once I had all the right tools the bolts came out fairly easy. Good luck, Lisa
